Does ginger tea have caffeine?
Originating from Asia, ginger tea is made from ginger root, whereas black, green, white and oolong teas are made from the leaves of the camellia sinensis plant. Teas harvested from camellia sinensis all contain caffeine, but fruit tisanes, and herbal teas like ginger tea, do not.
A robust and raunchy cup of hot ginger tea packs a punch, but you don’t need to worry about a caffeine hit.
